Larry was recently asked to be a guest curator for Ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of art, information and entertainment.
Originating in the mid-1970s in Columbus, Ohio, Ragazine was the title of an alternative newspaper published by a small group of friends. In 2004, it was revived on the web as Ragazine.cc by Mike Foldes, founder and managing editor, and continues to be a collaboration of artists, writers, poets and photographers.
Guest curators are asked to gather work from fellow artists and photographers that they believe merit a larger audience. Larry selected Columbus photographers Kojo Kamau and Chas Ray Krider as featured artists for the November-December 2009 issue.
Following a four-year stint as an Air Force photographer in the early 1960s, Kojo has spent a lifetime photographing Columbus, Ohio. His photos include well-known locals like Elijah Pierce, as well as nationally known figures Maya Angelou, Muhammed Ali and fellow photographer, Gordon Parks.

Chas Ray also started out documenting life in Columbus and over the years moved to framing the darker side of life. Two of his erotica series are entitled Goodbye Kitty and Days of Noir.

The images of Kamau and Krider, posed here with cameras of yesteryear, are part of Larry’s ongoing Colorful Camera Series. The first of these images can be seen in a previous post entitled Digital Technology Changes in a Flash.

We’d like to share with you, LIQUID MOTION, our first video production. Shot at 400 frames per seconds on a Casio point and shoot camera, the video juxtaposes water in motion with Latina Dancers, creating a mesmerizing slow motion effect.

Water images were shot at the Marble Cliff public fountain in Columbus, Ohio. The effect of water moving through space, in lieu of falling towards the ground, was achieved by turning the camera sideways.
